Landmark Aviation

Industry: Aviation

Headquarters: Houston, TX


Landmark Aviation (“Landmark”) was one of the largest providers of fueling and ground support services to the general and commercial aviation markets through its network of more than 75 fixed base operations (“FBOs”) in the U.S., Canada and Europe.  In addition to FBOs, the company provided engine maintenance services, aircraft charter and management, and aircraft fueling and IT support services to the U.S. military.  In 2012, Landmark was recapitalized by The Carlyle Group.  The Company received cash proceeds and also reinvested in the Carlyle transaction to retain a minority equity position in the company.  In early 2016, the Company exited its investment when Landmark was sold to BBA Aviation/Signature Flight Support for approximately $2.1 billion.
